    Paramount Series 30 Suspension or info needed

    Can someone please help. I have a Paramount series 30 and want to add a front suspension to it. I know it is a threaded type but what diameter and length do I need. It looks like 150mm from bottom of headset to top of nut. Any recommendations would be great. Also I would be interested in a good used setup if anyone wants to sell. Please email me at my work at bmurray@hydromat.com. Thanks for all repleis and emailed info.

    Good luck finding a suspension fork with a threaded steerer.

    The steerer tube size is 1 1/8", but you'll need to do some digging to locate a fork. Threaded oversized steerers were completely out of style after 1995.

    Here is some info on threaded headsets -- http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=127

    It would probably be easier to just convert it over to a threadless setup.
